Popular Conservative Party MP Pierre Poilievre declared his intention to be the party's next leader.

In a video posted to his Twitter account Saturday evening, the Ottawa-area MP said he was running to be Canada's next prime minister and vowed to “restore freedom.”

Many Conservative supporters hoped the well-regarded MP would run in the party's previous leadership in 2020, though he declined to do so citing familial commitment.

Poilievre becomes the first person to announce their candidacy for the leadership race after previous leader Erin O'Toole was forced out of the position following a caucus vote earlier this week. Deputy party leader and Manitoba MP Candice Bergen is currently serving as the Conservatives interim leader.
